We think this ring is out of this world! But did you know that it is believed that all the gold mined on earth came from outer space? According to standard planetary formation models, the gold, platinum, and tungsten that were present when Earth was born should have quickly bonded to iron and sunk into the planet’s core. Those precious metals are thousands of times more prevalent on the surface of Earth and in its mantle than the models predict. Geologists say all evidence points to a colossal meteor shower about 4 billion years ago having deposited the additional precious metals on the earth’s surface. #outofthisworld #gold #geology #preciousmetals #science #jewelryfacts #brombergsjewelry #themoreyouknow #wow
